Murang’a county Senator Irungu Kang’ata has spilled details of what the Court of Appeal has allowed which might ultimately work against the controversial Building Bridges Initiative report.
According to the former Whip, the Court of Appeal has allowed introduction of new evidence that will be administered by both the National Assembly as well as the Senate jointly.
This evidence will have some implications on the BBI report since it will show that constitutional experts had given some opinions on the BBI and their opinions have differed.
Another setback that’s evident is that the majority the Report is under the support of the parliamentary Hansard which also will show those who have their input including legal parliamentary minds.
“Court of Appeal decision to allow admission of joint Senate/ NA report on BBI plus senate hansard boosts respondents( BBI opposers) case dramatically. Both contain 2 constitutional experts opinion/majority report/plenary submissions by learned legislators that fault bbi.” Tweeted Irungu Kang’ata.
This comes just few days before the Court of Appeal begins its sittings in order to hear the BBI case which has been appealed by most of the key stakeholders in the whole process of the report sensitization.
Among those at the Court of Appeal is president Uhuru Kenyatta who is against being dragged into the whole process and yet he was not part of the case introduced at the High Court.
